Great, your CD template is looking good.

On the #18 image, the way it opens is as the screenshots - First thing I see is
the active later is not visible.

Guessing it is an "intermediate layer" and you need the one above. Keeping old
layers is good practice.

On the layer above, which is visible but you still can not edit because there is
an active selection elsewhere in the image. This is a common beginner problem.
Even a single pixel as an active selection prevents anything working outside the
selection. An active selection will show as 'crawling ants' however if you are
zoomed in to another part of the image you might not see it.

Easy to check/fix. Go to *** Select -> None *** and click if it is not greyed
out to kill it. Guessing that is your "dotted line rectangle artefact" you

What to do then. I cannot see anything there to clone. You can try lightening
under the text with a fuzzy brush and the dodge/burn tool. Go easy with that
one, not very nice. There are other ways, you can outline the text for example.

One thing I notice. In the template, Inside left page indicates it should be
flipped both vertical and horizontal. Check with your printer.
